Profile

Hello and welcome to my social page! I go by several aliases. For here, it is it Spikybum Jolteon but I do still go by my original name, Eclipsis. I have been with DeviantArt since July, 2004.

I am a graduate of a community college with an Associate’s in Computer Programming. I am currently taking classes towards a Bachelor’s in Business Administration: Computer Management. My graduation date will hopefully be by the end of Fall, 2015.

I develop the Minecraft modification, PokemonMD: Disciples of Corruption, which adds various hostile creatures themed after Pokemon usually combined with another theme from another game, movie, book, ect. I justify working on the mod as something to put on a resume/portfolio.

My personal idol is Markus Persson, or Notch, the developer of Minecraft. I appreciate his personal history and efforts it took for him to arrive at creating the game. Historic idols include General Robert E. Lee, Theodore Roosevelt, and Albert Einstein. I also learn much from my best friend, MythTrainerInfinity.

As an artist, my primary media are graphite and colored pencils. I also have skill with vector and text based pictures.

So until next time, this is Spikybum Jolteon,

So it has been a while since I posted an update about myself. It has been off and on good and bad. My four week summer break came and went; spent a lot of time on the Minecraft modification. I played and finished Pokémon Omega Ruby (very good game). I picked up League of Legends yet again for a small past time all because I am obsessed over the champion, Ahri (but I am a terrible player).

Some of you might know that of my two part time jobs, one is for our family business, a used bookstore. It is not doing very well in the last few months because of significant road construction. The construction is expected to last until the end of November. That is a long time to weather bad business and I have been asked to cover more expenses than usual using money from my other job. I was told yesterday that the family job is three semi-monthly paychecks behind on paying me.

Well, if that was all of the problems, I would be fine, but I have a more serious concern coming up in a few months. My financial aid for my final semester is only going to cover 1/3 of my school expense, leaving me to come up with the other $2,000 plus books (the school jacked up tuition this next semester by $20 a credit hour). I do have enough to weather even that but I am more concerned in the long run after that. I won’t have much to spare in case something serious does happen.

I still wish there was a way to get a return off of my Disciples of Corruption modification but I don’t really see any. The ad revenue I do earn is about $.40 a month. I looked at Patreon but I do not see very prolific mods doing very well there. My mod isn’t prolific in the slightest in the grand scheme of things. Still, it is a big part of my life. I work on it every day for at least 15 minutes but usually more than that.

If anyone might have a suggestion on what I could do to try and get a return on my modification, I would love to hear it.

This is Spikybum Jolteon,

I haven't had the time, but i finally found your DA user.

It's about time you updated Disciples of Corruption mod to 1.7.10, now ALL my fav mods (except 2 mods) are at 1.7.10!

Heheh, thanks. Apparently I did not have to really change anything other than a single line of code to some unreleased content. I have absolutely never had an update that easy since I started modding in 1.4.7. ^^

Apparently they are changing how tamable's work slightly. (heheh, hint hint)

From the current version, there are 0 tamables.
I assume that it is still a WIP.

Yah, it is a WIP. That is why it was turned off. Updating and releasing 1.7.10 was a bit spontaneous once I learned just how simple the update was going to be to that version. I did not formally remove all the new stuff from the code. I just simply turned it off.
